On the return trip from a Garden Tractor show........ Look what I found!!

We left the show and were meandering home through some back roads.   In this little town in the middle of nowhere we came across a big stash of 55-57 chevys  I knew I had to take pictures or no one would believe me.   I didn't get an accurate count but there had to be about 80 of them in various conditions.    There was a row of dog houses stacked against a building.   All kinds of body pieces and motors.      There was a nice 1956 two door post  red outside ,black/white interior, Crager SS mags, & a 4 speed.   Don't know what the motor was..     Didn't matter because I didn't have the $25,000 to buy it. 

Even in bad shape I was drooling over so many tri-fives in one place.           Rick

There's a fella in IN that also has a junk-yard full of those and barns full of the parts. That is about ALL he messes with.  He had big farm, then moved the whole bunch to an even Bigger farm and barns, and most indoors now, all kinda like sorted and stacked all over in the diff barns.  I bought some old Chevy truck stuff from him in past.

Wow. When I was going to Nova Scotia today, I saw a restored 57 chev wagon hauling what looked to be a correct era 57 hard top camper. I was on a divided highway going one way and they were on the other highway traveling the other way, so did not get a very good look. I think they might be heading to the brudenell car show on PEI today.

The '55 is my favorite, the look of it can be influenced so much with different colors of paint tires and rims.

Nice....

We were on a motorcycle ride Saturday and saw a really nice '55 going down the road.

I know it was OLD, because I am a 1955 model!

Of the 20 some vehicles I've owned, never had a 55-57. Realistically, probably never will.

The pics make me sad. One, probably something I will never make a priority. Second, that stuff may end up scrapped one day.

I always liked this one, esp. the wheels

I passed up a rusty set of cragar mags a couple months back, did take the tires off 2 of them for my trailer.  They were off an old barracuda, another old car i'll probably never own...
